Chyluria is a condition of lymphourinary reflux by means of fistulous correspondences optional to lymphatic balance brought about by block of the lymphatic stream. It's anything but a type of ongoing filarial condition, brought about by discontinuous release of intestinal lymph (chyle) into the renal pelvis lastly into the pee. Chyluria happens just in 2% of the filarial tainted patients. Filaria is normal in tropical and subtropical regions. It's anything but exceptional discovering pregnant patient with chyluria and its related side effects. Chyluria is by and large idea as innocuous conditions in larger part however in our piece of state lethal result has been seen when not appropriately oversaw. Constant chyluria can prompt hunger because of loss of protein and lipid. It turns out to be more imperative to analyze and forcefully treat pregnant patient to forestall dismalness and mortality of mother and kid. Chyluria is a urological sign of lymphatic framework illness which may prompt {1} nourishing lack, intermittent cluster colic, urinary maintenance, urinary plot disease, hematuria and a condition of repaid immunosuppression. Chyluria may prompt genuine immunological and hemstatic shortage because of IgG and IgA inadequacy. There are different hypotheses with respect to advancement of chyluria; however these days, two speculations have been involved as causative components them:

A. Obstructive hypothesis [Aye and Aung, 1975]

B. Regurtitative hypothesis [Ngan and Leong, 1977]


Parasitic-Predominent Forms This is the commonest structure in india and basically connected with wuchereria bancrofti contamination[2].

Non Parasitic

Non parasitic causes incorporates tuberculosis, intrinsic lymphangioma of urinary parcel, injury, pregnancy, threatening invasion of lymphatics.


The most well-known etiological factor for chyluria is filariasis and ought to be viewed as filarial except if demonstrated in any case especially in filarial belt. Chyluria is the final product of impedance of retroperitoneal lymphatics because of endless loop of contamination sclerosis obstructive retrograde dilatation, balance reverse and unconstrained break with fistualisation into the urinary lot[3].

Clinical Features

Pregnant female with chyluria may present as monosymptomatic or might be polysymptomatic. In the current investigation we experienced portion of the patients (n = 21) were experiencing chyluriaalone followed by urinary maintenance (n = 10) dysuria (n = 6) fever and diminished fetal development (n = 4 each) and hematuria (n = 3)[4].


There are such countless examinations for analysis and the board of chyluria separated from routine assessment of blood and pee. Particular tests are test for chyle in pee for example ether test, methylene blue test, AFB in three continuous morning test of pee. Microfilaria in centrifuged arrangement of pee. Discovery of microfilaria is portrayed in centrifuged arrangements of cystoscopically siphoned pee, however once in a while in ordinarily voided pee tests extraordinarily the chylous example. Different tests are radiological for example Retrograde pyelography, Lymphangiography, Lymphangioscintigraphy, Intravenous pyelography, CT-examine, MRI, ultrasonography, catalyst connected immunosorbent test (ELISA) for filarial antigen in blood and antibodies explicit to recombinant filarial antigen wbsxp-I have been utilized to create in ELISA for distinguishing coursing antigen filarial in serum of patient with filariasis. Another ELISA to recognize explicit IgG4 antibodies in un-concentrated pee has been created[5]. Serum type one collagen and type III procollagen. Urethrocystos duplicate and lateralization of chylous methodology for the executives. As of late, fatty substance has been exhibited to be generally present in chyluria, even in clear pee. The measure of fatty oil has been discovered to be straightforwardly corresponding to fogging of chylous pee. Fatty substance may be utilized as marker for assessment of chyluria. Pee egg whites is unusually high in most cases. We custom-made examination to routine assessment of pee, acidic analysis, AFB in three morning test of pee, examination to Test for chyle in pee after injestion of 75 g of margarine on night before the test and send first morning test of pee (Ether test) and Urethrocystos duplicate and lateralization.

Ingestion of fat improves the chyluria and helps in analysis.

Acidic Acid Test

Expansion of few drops of 10% acidic corrosive in 1 mL of chylous pee gets the darkness in cases free from phosphaturia, while obscurity continues in chyuria[6].

Ether Test

Equivalent piece of chylous pee and ether blended in a test tube and shaken overwhelmingly. Cleared pee shows chyluria.

The board

By traditionalist administration with rest, high protein diet, hematinic multivitamins a few patients improve (n = 6) however this ought not be pursued for over about fourteen days. On the off chance that indications not improve, in light of obliterating screech because of loss of protein and immunoglobulinssclero treatment ought to began immediately. Diethyl carbamazine ought not be utilized in pregnant patient since its security has not been set up in pregnancy; in spite of the fact that, it is being utilized by some doctor in these cases without revealed sick impact on hatchling. In our investigation we tracked down that the majority of the patient improved by multi day routine of sclerotherapy with 10% povidone iodine blended in with equivalent measure of typical Saline and 25% dextrose. Result of pregnancy was not influenced with this system and all the patient convey full term sound child. There are different specialist utilized for sclerotherapy like AgNO3, Povidone iodine, dextrose and radiographic differentiation material in various fixations. Extreme and lethal difficulties like interstitial nephritis, papillary corruption, intense cylindrical rot are related with utilization of silver nitrate as sclerosant in chyluria. Mortality has been accounted for because of intense cylindrical corruption on instillation of silver nitrate in the two ureters. Povidone iodine is protected and viable for overseeing chyluria. It is pretty much as powerful as 1% AgNO3 however not related with extreme and deadly confusions like interstitial nephritis, papillary putrefaction and intense rounded rot. Aside from this, it has clean, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Blend of sclero treatment utilizing a 5% Povidone iodine and half Dextrose arrangement has been discovered to be protected and practical insignificantly obtrusive treatment for chyluria unmanageable to traditionalist treatment. A 5 mL of half dextrose joined with 5 mL 0.2% povidone iodine gives more grounded and better fibrotic reaction. Various specialists discovered 87-100% achievement pace of sclerotherapy with betadine alone or in blend with dextrose. Our prosperity rate with blend sclerotherapy of betadine and dextrose was 86.2%, which is like aftereffect of different specialists.

Difficulties of Sclerotherapy

Difficulties of sclerotherapy was transient hematuria (n = 10) which created following two days of sclerotherapy, which was overseen by relinquishing the strategy, hydration of patient and anti-toxin inclusion. Colicky torment created in 8 patients soon after instillation of sclerosant which died down shortly period. Barely any patients required antispasmodic Decreased pee yield created in 4 patients which was overseen by of diuretics for a few days and satisfactory hydration. Fever and Urinary lot contamination was dealt with antipyretics and fitting anti-toxins. Queasiness and regurgitating created in two patients oversaw by antiemetic drugs. By dietary limitation and bed rest a portion of the pregnant patient with chyluria may improve. Sclerotherapy with 10% povidone iodine and 25% dextrose is a protected and powerful technique with high fix rate. Not many and confusions are related with this method of treatment. Clinical end of pregnancy and caesarian area might be the alternative in safe cases.
